White has been training with the first team and was on the bench for 3 EPL games.


Born: 19 September 2001 (Maidstone, England)


Central midfielder Harvey White was born in Maidstone and attended The Holmesdale School.

A keen cricketer in school, he was a regular for our Under-16s in 2017/18, scoring eight goals, while stepping up to feature once for the Under-18s.

During 2018/19, he scored six goals in 15 Under-18 Premier League appearances to help us finish second in that division - his tally included the first ever penalty to be scored at the new stadium as our youngsters beat Southampton 3-1 in a Test Event match there in March, 2019. A dead ball specialist who also filled in at left-back and centre-half during that eventful campaign, he scored once in three Under-18 Premier League Cup games and played twice in the FA Youth Cup at Millwall and Woolwich.

In September, 2018, he scored from the spot as our Under-17s beat Galatasaray in the final of the Euro Youth Cup in St Wendel, Germany.

Harvey featured in all but one of our eight UEFA Youth League matches in 2018/19 and played seven times in all competitions for our Development Squad. That included five showings in the Premier League 2, where he played at left-back in the last two games of the season, helping us secure back-to-back wins against Swansea and Derby to avoid relegation. He also scored a late free-kick at Portsmouth on his EFL Trophy debut in November, 2018.

In July, 2019, he made his senior debut at left-back during our pre-season tour of Asia.
 
Here's Gold's opinion:



Harvey White

Harvey has been training with the first team and has been a regular feature with the squad since the restart.

The 18-year-old central midfielder has impressed Mourinho with his versatility and he was involved in the training matches, including the one against Norwich, ahead of the restart.

The Portuguese has since put him on the bench in the Premier League three times, for the games against Manchester United, Bournemouth and Newcastle.

It has topped off a busy season for White, who made 29 appearances this season, turning out for the U23s, U19s and and at times the U18s, chipping in with seven goals and four assists.

White caught the eye of Pochettino in the summer, showing that versatility by playing at left-back against Juventus and Manchester United during the tour to Asia.


He returned to play with the U23s and he's been a leading light for them this campaign, playing mostly in midfield but also doing a job at left-back at times.

White can sit in a deeper role or help link up with the attacking players and his set-piece ability catches the eye. His corners are consistently dangerous and he's always a threat from free-kicks, having scored with some top drawer strikes in recent years.

He could take advantage of Skipp's loan move to get game time in the cup competitions especially next season.

Pleased to see JM has already said he will be joining first team squad next season.

Decent option as DM - adding his skills as one of the best at FK's and corners to come through the academy in the last decade or so.

Played at both DM and LB in preseason 2019.....and as u16 played AM whilst to play Barcelona in UEFA Youth League was brought in to play CB for his skill on the ball, leading to a Spurs bearting Barcelona. So he's versatile.

Could be a bit like our JWP then?

Not really a world beater and never will be, but hard working, versatile and can be very dangerous with his set pieces.

Jose bringing through another unknown academy kid.
Tanganga and Skipp given the green light but remains to be seen if Parrott will make it.
Did we bring back Clarke?

I hope he is a player that can influence games be it tough tackling, creative or goal scoring. We do seem to have a habit of late of producing 'neat and tidy'midfielders that aren't defensive, aren't that creative and don't score goals.

The only reason they've even got Harvy White in the first team set up, is so he can have Harry Winks' old training gear hand me downs... and they don't have to get a new set of initials sewn on...
Fucking tight arses! :levywhoa:

Why do you think we signed Ndombele?? 'Cos we had loads of leftover 'N's D's, O's, M's, B's L's & E's left in the club shop after Dembele, N'Jie and N'Koudo left!!!
